Heh, this is my bad, sorry. :-(

I'm willing to continue its support, but last dozen time we produce
backups with builtin dump/restore. If Bacula (see below) doesn't have
similar functionality as cdbkup, I'l try to resurrect it.

didn't know is it able to wrote backups to CD or not.

Please let me know the results.
